I ran over to where it turned, perplexed as to why it went the opposite way... and there as another little blue bus sign. Awesome, I was at the wrong bus sign. It would be nice to have numbers on them, but oh well. As I stood there wondering what to do, I saw two men walking by across the street and asked if they knew anything about the bus system, and when the next one would be by. They didn't know, but they told me about the shuttle that the employees take around to the different Mayo buildings. They both said that I would probably have no probably getting on, and if anyone said anything, just tell them what I was doing , and they would let me ride. SO I did.
One of the men walked me over to the proper door, and I waited for the shuttle to come, which it did, right on time. I just walked right on and no one said a thing. It took me straight downtown, right in front of the building I needed to be at, and right when I needed to be there. Perfect! And it didn't cost me a dime (or $2). I went up stairs and met with Donna and Julia, who took me down and introduced me to a cute little girl, and her mother. I gave her a bead, and she loved it! She just wanted to play with it, and show off a little, what a cutie!! Unfortunately, that was the only child I got to meet today. Which is a good thing really... So I gave Julia my bag of beads, and took some pictures, and walked off into down town Rochester.
What a fun little town. I stopped at a cafe and ordered green tea and a Greek yogurt parfait. The tea came with milk, honey and lemon and an extra pot of hot water. YES! I love milk and honey in green tea, and I also love honey and lemon in my green tea. So I had a cup of each. I sat there for quite some time before moving onto the Barns and Noble across the way and shopped around to spend the $10 gift card I had. After buying a new note keeper that shouldn't be too easily destroyed, and went in search of a place for a yummy snack. That's when I found The Tap Room, and got a s'more bar and a pint of beer. I went up stairs to the roof and sat and enjoyed myself for a while before others started to arrive. So I left, and took the bus back to Sue's house.
We ate dinner, and long story short, I killed my Ipod!!! I washed it and put it in the dryer.... I couldn't believe it. However, Sue was kid enough to take me to Target buy me a new one! Thanks again Sue! We took it home and I tried for 2 HOURS to get that thing to work, and at 10:50, we drove back down to Target and I found the guy who sold it to me, and when I went to show him that it would't register with my computer... bam, it worked. haha... Good grief, what a way to end a day.
